Hash (HSH), a Quantum-Resistant Cryptographic Hash Library
Discover Hash (HSH), a Highly Secure Quantum-Resistant Cryptographic Hash Library for Password Encryption and Verification in Rust.
The Hash (HSH) Rust library provides an interface for implementing secure hash and digest algorithms, specifically designed for password encryption and verification.
The library provides a simple API that makes it easy to store and verify hashed passwords. It enables robust security for passwords, using the latest advancements in Quantum-resistant cryptography. Quantum- resistant cryptography refers to cryptographic algorithms, usually public-key algorithms, that are thought to be secure against an attack by a quantum computer. As quantum computing continues to advance, this feature of the library assures that the passwords managed through this system remain secure even against cutting-edge computational capabilities.
The library supports the following Password Hashing Schemes (Password Based Key Derivation Functions):
- Argon2i: A cutting-edge and highly secure key derivation function designed to protect against both traditional brute-force attacks and rainbow table attacks. (Recommended)
- Bcrypt: A password hashing function designed to be secure against brute-force attacks. It is a work-factor function, which means that it takes a certain amount of time to compute. This makes it difficult to attack with a brute-force algorithm.
- Scrypt: A password hashing function designed to be secure against both brute-force attacks and rainbow table attacks. It is a memory-hard and work- factor function, which means that it requires a lot of memory and time to compute. This makes it very difficult to attack with a GPU or other parallel computing device.
The library is a valuable tool for developers who need to store and verify passwords in a secure manner. It is easy to use and can be integrated into a variety of applications.
